I had tried Keto and failed misarably over the years.
This is the first time I have been successfully and the issue was, I never did enough fat. And MCT oil just works for me ( after tummy got used to it).
I always would lower the carb and increase the protein and not too much fat, I think my body likes oil as energy the best.
I am not symptomatic ( except at noon when my nap times come, I am ready for it) but the rest of the day I run around normal. I do not have more energy ( like I couldn’t go run or anything) but when I am just sitting and going around to office, walk from place to place ( my work building is huge!!) I can handle very well.
All this little things I am doing are adding up. I was slow onset and it feels this days like my CFs felt like on early onset years.
OI ( POTs) is not better, I would say worst at night ( I pass out more and less elegantly). And have some Bizare new thing going on that will explain on seperate blog. But might be electrolyte inbalance due to new diet. So will adjust potassium and sodium and see if that helps.
I love love love MCT oil, is supposed to bypass the energy conversion cycle and you have energy readily available and do you!!! I am very happy and I think even if I am not on KETO will add to my Cfs supplements.
Overall I feel great, with hope I am getting out of this cycle.
Again I do get remissions so might all be coincidnence, but I was looking back when I got sick and was around the time I increase my carbs intakes significantly. So will see if this helps.
I am still doing peptides shots once a month. I feel that is helping also.
